No, you basically have write access or you don't.  Different 
users/groups can receive different notifications, though. You can have a 
passwordless user with read access if you want to make it easier to 
embed graphs in other web pages or export data through the web 
interface.   You can also create logins that get a 'dashboard only' view 
that is basically a grid of machines selected by a pair of attributes 
(like location and server type) where the grid shows the number total 
number of nodes and the count of nodes with services down, and 
underneath the grid you can select views with more details for any of 
the servers in the group.  You can't make any changes from the dashboard 
only logins, though.
